Our annual Grandparents’ and Special Friends’ Days (GPSF Days) are rapidly approaching! This year, we will host our two-day event on Thursday, April 11 and Friday, April 12.

Because our community has steadily increased in the past several years, we would like to take this opportunity to inform you of some changes to the day of events. As we continue to refine and balance our curricular expectations with performances by elementary students, this year we will be projecting a video of children’s performances (Winterfest, pictures of Science Fair, etc.) rather than offering a live show. Grandparents and special friends are always welcome at Winterfest and Spring Expo, which are our two annual performance offerings. Please make sure to read the schedule below carefully so you can help communicate it to the grandparents and special friends who will be attending. Please note that to better accommodate the number of adults visiting in the classroom and to make it less overwhelming for the children, we will assign groups of 4 visitors maximum in Toddler House, Children’s House, Lower and Upper Elementary.
